List Of Detroit Lions' 2012 NFL Draft Picks

The full 2012 NFL Draft order has been announced. The league released all of the compensatory picks for 2012 on Monday, and now the full seven-round order is set.

As mentioned yesterday, the Detroit Lions currently have seven draft picks. Six of them are their own picks and one was acquired in a trade. Here's the breakdown:

  • Round 1 - 23rd, 23rd overall
  • Round 2 - 22nd, 54th overall
  • Round 3 - 22nd, 85th overall
  • Round 4 - 22nd, 117th overall
  • Round 5 - 23rd, 158th overall
  • Round 6 - 22nd (forfeited)
  • Round 7 (from Seattle) - 12th, 219th overall
  • Round 7 - 23rd, 230th overall

A couple of notes about the picks listed above ... The Lions' sixth-round pick was forfeited because of the tampering charges involving the Kansas City Chiefs. Because the Lions made the playoffs, they were forced to part ways with their sixth-round selection. As for the extra seventh-round pick, it was acquired in 2010 in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks involving Tyler Polumbus.
